Here it’s at low risk so far, because Trump took actions starting a month ago and we have good systems in place, including cutting off entries from infected area. That said, it’s hard to interdict everything, even with good policy. But Iran made it worse, and it’s hitting their officials and their clerics.

The number of people that have been killed from the coronavirus inside the Islamic Republic of Iran has reportedly exploded as an Iranian member of parliament admitted on Friday that the nation was lying to the world about the “horrific numbers” of deaths the country has suffered.
The BBC reported:
At least 210 people in Iran have died as a result of the new coronavirus disease, sources in the country’s health system have told BBC Persian.
Most of the victims are from the capital, Tehran, and the city of Qom, where cases of Covid-19 first emerged.
Iran’s Islamic government, which is notoriously dishonest, insisted that the BBC was lying and claimed that only 388 people had been infected and only 34 had died.
New York Times reporter Farnaz Fassihi reported on Friday: “Real infected numbers about 10,000 to 15,000, says head of health committee of Tehran city council.”
